NOBODY’s better at fusing romance with suspense and danger and again Roberts shows why she’s one of the world’s bestselling writers.
Readers will be hooked from the start when Shelby Pomeroy discovers some shattering truths after her husband Richard dies in an accident. The man she married was a liar, a cheat and he’s left her with eye-watering debts. With little choice, Shelby takes her toddler Callie and heads home to her parents’ place back in Rendezvous Ridge in Tennessee. The comforting warmth of a small town is vividly brought to life and with her family around her and a deepening friendship with honest hard-working carpenter Griffin Lott, it seems Shelby can put her troubles behind her. But the shadow of Richard’s shady dealings has not gone away and Shelby discovers she’s in grave danger from events created by her shifty husband. She’s been able to run, but not to hide from evil and murder, and now she has to take a stand – hopefully with Griff by her side. A summer sizzler. Review by Janet McKechnie.
